Zae MunnIt would also be helpful to hear how many rehearsal hours per week are required for those who have one-credit ensembles.

Rick SowersNo. We've discussed it over the years. Extremely rare that a student would exercise the option to take for more than 1 credit; no room in their schedule. We even have an option for zero hours credit for some students in multiple ensembles to keep them from exceeding semester max.
Colton Blaine HillMy university concert choir met 6 hours a week for 1 credit hour. Chamber choir met 2 hours a week for 1 credit hour. Band met 6 hours a week for 1 credit hour.
It's the best option for students, so they aren't paying ungodly tuition for a 6 hour ensemble.

Gena WiltshireI'm not an employee (just a graduate) but Gardner Webb University in NC allowed students to choose how many credit hours they wanted for their Concert Choir ensemble. 0-3 credit hours. We met 4 hours a week. I think this was the set up for all ensemble groups but I am not positive.

Bruce J G KotowichNancy Menk, not all Canadian University Music Programs seek out NASM accreditation however, our situation with academic ensemble credit is .5 course credit per ensemble per term at our University.
